Sands Cottage has to be one of the best placed cottages at Calgary on Mull. Cross the single track road in front of the cottage and you on on the beautiful sands of Calgary bay in a few short steps. A great place for those wanting to make the most of this beautiful setting. There is a gallery and tearoom not far from the opposite end of the beach (reached via a woodland track) and the house is ten minutes drive from Dervaig village where there is a pub and village shop.
Nearest village: Dervaig (5 miles)
Drive to ferry terminal at Craignure: 1 hour

Things to Do
South of Calgary, the road follows the western coast towards Ulva Ferry and Loch na Keal - a beautiful area, great for wildlife and with some stunning scenery. There are gardens at Lip na Cloiche and a restaurant at Ballygown. At Ulva Ferry itself you can take a short boat trip across to the Isle of Ulva, have lunch at the Boathouse and explore the well marked paths criss crossing the island, or you could head out on one of the tour boats, taking people to the Treshnish Islands and Staffa.
North of the cottage, a ten minute drive brings you to Dervaig and there are some forestry tracks en route, as well as the road to Croig where there are more walking opportunities to some fabulous, out of the way beaches. Tobermory is takes a little under half and hour to reach by car with its shops, arts centre, theatre, gift shops and more.
